Several Indian newspapers and magazines have taken to running a disclaimer on advertisements to insulate themselves from “liabilities”.

For instance, The Times of India group runs this on its classified advertising pages:

But the right-wing English daily newspaper, The Pioneer has, well, pioneered a disclaimer which appears to include its editorial content.

“Do not owe any responsibility for any damage or loss to any person”?

“This work”?

Newspaper as a journal of record?
